Nissan GT-R Track Edition


Trucks, tuner cars and even a diesel compact came out to the 2013 Chicago Auto Show this year.

While it wasn’t a worldwide debut, the Nissan GT-R Track Edition made its first U.S. appearance during the show. The car is limited to 150 units and features performance enhancements including better brake cooling, a stiffer suspension and a lighter curb weight thanks in part to losing its rear seats.

It keeps the same 545 hp output, but gets a carbon fiber rear wing and special RAYS wheels. Unfortunately for Nissan, it’s not really new so it can’t make the official “Top 10″ list. An honorable mention will have to do instead.

With that out of the way, click below to see AutoGuide.com’s picks for the top 10 cars this year in the Windy City.
